Crime in Omaha

Postby joeglow » Tue Jun 03, 2008 8:47 pm

Omaha and Lincoln have finally been added to Spot Crime.  However, the OPD is showing their usual unwillingness to cooperate with crime statistics.  Thus, while Lincoln shows ALL crimes in the city, they are currently forced to rely on news reports for Omaha:

LPD has been offering that info online for several years now.  I will say that I've been impressed with the online offerings that Lincoln has put together.

I agree.  Their assessor's website kicks arse.  And this is after they scaled it back because I am sure people were complaining that they had EVERYTHING, including scanned copies of real estate transfer documents, available for free.

This just shows FURTHER |expletive| that Fahey and the city is doing.  It has been said that they classify shootings that don't injure people as "property crimes."  It appears they will do just about anything to manipulate the crime statistics and will guard them with their lives.

This thread gives me another chance to vent on the crappy-ass local paper. Anybody else notice how you will read about tons of crimes on the local TV station's websites and then see nothing mentioned about most of them in the paper? A few months back some dude robbed a gas station, lead police on a high speed chase into our neighborhood, crashed his car and ran into the woods.  There were 15 OPD cars, 2 State Patrol cars, the helicopter and a K-9 unit. 15 OPD cars had to be pretty much every unit in NW Omaha at the time.

The World Herald's story...still waiting. Anybody that doesn't believe the WH has an agenda needs to have their head checked.

BTW, I just checked that spotcrime site. It lists a shooting and an armed robbery of a business in my neighborhood. The two sources were WOWT and KMTV. Go figure.

I thought the OWH sued awhile back to have those records released?  I remember reading a multi-part article that contained a map just like the one from the link.  Anyone else remember that?

KEVIN COLE WORLD-HERALD STAFF WRITER wrote:People wanting to pinpoint crime in Omaha soon will have to make only a few keystrokes on their computer.

"The data that you will see is very close to the data we see." Also, users can be individually updated anytime a crime is committed in a neighborhood. "If you want to know each time a felony assault is committed in your neighborhood, then you just enter your e-mail address and you will be notified," Gray said.

It is of no surprise to me that Fahey is not willing to come off crime numbers in his city.

Honest question:

What constitutes "crime"?

Police call?  Police report?  Police investigation? Trial? Conviction?

Broadmoor has said that car break ins have gotten so bad that they are planning on spending thousands to fence and gate all of their projects.

You can tell the weather has finally become nice.  Five shootings in 48 hours.  Almost a dozen wounded and one dead.

They must have been practicing in the "off-season" with that kind of aim.

A shooting takes place East of 72nd and Harrison, a dozen people come forward and we catch the shooter in less than 24 hours.

Now, if we can just get the people in NE Omaha to cooperate with police.

You're aware of the average shelf life of a witness to a gang crime, correct?

Ehh I should check before I post stuff like that.  I was talking with a friend and they said there was a shooting in south Omaha and I asked the one by Lauritzen Gardens and they said no and I just took it as fact.  But I haven't seen any reports on it.  I am pretty sure they were talking about the one on 3rd and Cedar.  Either way pretty crazy week so far from all the action Sunday, to a murder at a really busy park, a shooting that got an officer hurt and now one at a hospital.

You act as if everyone that has a gun is loosely federated and makes plans to go out and shoot.

I don't know why everyone is surprised by the shootings here. No one can or wants to address any of the real problems so it's going to be a reality for the foreseeable future.

Although numerous shootings have occurred citywide this week, Barney said, the trend line for homicides is down in north Omaha.

Through Friday, seven homicides have taken place in north Omaha, he said, compared with 10 in the same period last year.

In the rest of the city, five have taken place during that period compared with one last year, he said.


The new bus branding seems to have made the thugs more mobile.

Personally, the shootings don't bother me so much as the rate of incidences within the last couple weeks.

I LOVE the bullsh*t excuse that it is NOT their fault.  I and the rest of society made them do it.  Give me a freaking break.

The real problem is fuzzy dice.  Didn't you hear?

Once you outlaw fuzzy dice, only outlaws use fuzzy dice.

Another large string of violent crimes this past week.  Maybe it is the heat making people lose their darn minds.

Anyone else feel like the Old Market murder last night has been kept really low profile?

Anyways the city needs to take the liquor license from the club in the Landmark building and never give it back.  Too much violent crime comes from that bar no matter what they call it now a days, I would rather have an empty storefront.

Well, they sure reported the shootings (two of them, apparently) on the news this morning.

Embarrassing as he!! to have things like this when the CWS crowd is in town! :(

It does seem like their "Crime" stories usually start over there.  That Standoff this mornign was burried way down there for a while.  Sometimes I wonder if they actually choose where the stories go on Omaha.com or if the computer decided based on number of views.
